The David Randall guide states Southern purchased 24(2400 - 2423) of the 46 10-6 sleepers in the order.
Here are the names of the rivers from the Wiley and Wallace guidebook:
The CNOTP 3400 cars, 3400 - 3404:
I pose this question to the group. The Royal Arch was rebuilt to a 11 Bedroom sleeper from an observation car of the same name. This car was involved in a wreck and my understanding is the York river was rebuilt to 11 bedroom to replace the Royal Arch. Is this true? The 11 bedroom Royal Arch is at the museum in Spencer should then be originally the York River.
There's a diagram for the 10-Roomette-6 Double Bedroom car Enoree River
(along with all the other cars in the series) in the 1956 Southern Railway passenger car diagram book in my possession, also a listing for the car in the 1961 Pullman Official List.
There's also a photo of the car on page 75 of David Randall's The Official Pullman-Standard Library - Vol. 7, Southeast Roads.

The Southern Railway had three 10-6 'River'sleepers that had an "E" at the start, Emory River, Enoree River and Etowah River. You can pick your favorite.
There is a picture of the 10-6 Pullman Enoree River on page 75 of W. David Randall's Pullman-Standard Library, Vol. 7. There is no listing of a car named Eno River.

I assumed that the original post on this topic had a typo in the subject line, and that it should have read "Emory River" - but no one ever corrected it.
On the other hand, Ike posted a photo of the "Emory River" car. Reasonable evidence that a car by that name existed - although Ike is pretty good with Photoshop.
Geographically, there is such a thing as the "Enoree River" (in SC), but evidence a car was given that name does not seem to have emerged.
